HIGHWAY ENGINEER HERE
R. H. Baldock, district engineer
for the state highway commission,
with headquarters at LaGrande, was
in town for a few minutes Saturday
morning. Mr. Baldock says they
have been having a bad time with
highway work on the mountain near
Meacham on account of weather con
ditions and the contractors have not
been able to make much progress.
Cars are still miring down and sev
eral teams are employed pulling
them out. There has been complaint
of some of the teams employed for
that, purpose charging autoists a fee
for their assistance but as soon as
theso reports reached Mr. Baldock
he read the riot act to his men and
warned them that under the law any
of them caught grafting would face
a penitentiary term of five years.
Mr. Baldock says that several wood
haulers had been receiving pay for
pulling cars out of the mudholes and
he does not know that any of his
employes were guilty but the warn
ing will have the right effect, any
way. Some concern has been felt by
highway officials and others regard
ing road conditions during the pres
ident's visit at Meachan July 3rd,
but Mr. Baldock says he had a big
tractor and grader started on the
road Saturday morning working the
grade up to where it belongs and
that he is confident they will have
thu road solid and smooth and in
good shape for travel in time to
handle tht crowds.

TREND OE TRU ES IS
MA IMA' DOWNWARD
The commodity price trend is now
mainly downward, though the move
ment is not marked. The check to
the recent upward swing of whole
sale quotations is reflected in Pun's
monthly index number for June 1,
which shows a further s'.lght reces
sion. At $194,424. representing the cost
per capita of a year's supply of com
modiUes, the present figure is 0.S
ner cent belo-w tt.nt Of the imme
diately preceding month, when the
first decline since last September
was recorded. The recent reversal ,
of the price movement has only c i
after an advance of 20 per cent over j
the low level touched in the summ.r
of 1921. and the index number is
still fully 12 Mi per ceut above the;
figure of a year ago. Comparing
with the pre-war basis, a rise of 5SH
per ceut Is disclosed. !
Prices of six of the eight cmnmo.' ,

June 1 than at the beginning of this
year, copper and coffee being the ex
ceptions. From the prices of the
